Maison Ikkoku

Along the Malay Heritage Centre, you can find many Muslim, Middle Eastern and Turkish eateries and bistros. And then, there is Maison Ikkoku – to some, it is the name of  Japanese manga, but to us, it’s our new favourite dessert bistro!

Blueberry Cheesecake ($8) – The one big attraction of the cheesecake was the shear generous amount of blueberries! Juicy, fresh plump blueberries atop a cheesecake stained with the juices from the blueberries, it was a sight absolutely tantalizing. The cheesecake was a bit soft – which we suspect is due to the cheesecake soaking up the blueberry juice. But the cheesecake was still decently rich and sticky. The sweet tanginess of the blueberries was a good complement to the cheesiness. The crumbles at the back of the cake were fragrant and didn’t taste stale at all.

Chocolate Caramel Popcorn ($8) – The caramel popcorn garnish atop the cake was very sweet. The popcorn was a bit stale though, and lacked the crunchiness of popcorn. The chocolate cake consisted of alternating layers of chocolate sponge and fudge. The chocolate taste was probably not as overwhelmingly rich as we had expected. One mini surprise was the thin insertion of caramel within the layers of chocolate, with that extra sweetness lingering in the background.
